EDITED 05/26/2020: I am attaching the document that covers what is acceptable if you wish to send cards to the troops. It also contains the mailing address and an email if you have questions. Thanks for your support!
If you or someone you love is currently serving in the armed forces, thank you for your service. The families of service members deserve thanks also. Today I had a chance to ask questions about the Cards for Troops ministry that another of my crafty friends currently runs. She told me that are very strict rules about what kind of cards we can send. See, she collects cards from all of us and then sends them overseas where they are placed for the service members to choose from to send to someone they love. So, these aren’t cards they are receiving, they are the cards they will be sending.
As you can guess, they cannot contain anything shiny, like glitter or sequins or even certain papers. They cannot be too thick. They cannot contain any religious affiliation references, like Merry Christmas, Praying for You, or With God All Things are Possible. They can have things like Have a great day or Thinking of You. That said, she told me their biggest need right now is Thank You cards and Blank cards. So, I made these today to send out. I thought this particular paper pack with red, white and blue colors would be perfect. Let me know what you think. Enjoy!
If you have any interest in donating cards or postage funds, let me know and I can put you in touch with her.
